Reading Retreat at Home

Reading Retreat at Home

I saw a blogger going on a reading retreat. It seemed like such a great idea and I looked into it. While everything was great, as in the venues that organize this and the whole concept, it wasn’t suitable for us. I don’t like the idea of leaving Festus somewhere for a couple of nights […]

Me, Going to Oxford University

Going to Oxford University

I’m sure you can imagine how excited I am to write this post, to share that I’m going to Oxford University next month! I will read history! Isn’t that amazing?! I spent two years searching for the best options for me; that involved going on open days to a few universities, including to three open […]

Unusual date Ideas

Unusual Date Ideas

I thought of writing a post on unusual date ideas for a few weeks now, when I thought of the latest things we did. I picked up five different ideas. All the activities I’m talking about can be done in Liverpool and Manchester, but some of them are available in other parts of Britain, and […]

I thought it would be nice to make a little update with things I’m looking forward to this month and next month. These days I’m going to try out a new subscription box and I can’t wait to share my views on the blog. But, this post is about other things I’m looking forward to. […]

International Women’s Day

Today is International Women’s Day and I’ve decided to make a post on two things we women can do today to celebrate this day. Of course, there is also the third option: cake, nice meal, and/or a SPA day. That’s the way I’ve celebrated before and how I plan to celebrate today too. But I […]

Festus on Holiday

You might read “Festus on Holiday” and wonder if the family pet should have a holiday. I think he needs a holiday. At home Festus “has” to guard the house from all sorts of dangers, like the postman who keeps coming a few times each week. That is a job and a pretty demanding one, […]

My thoughts on The Apprentice

I imagine it would be interesting to talk about my thoughts on The Apprentice now, when three years ago I said it was my favourite TV show. A couple of years ago I went to the Bridge cafe, one of the cafes where the loosing team goes to talk. the picture is from three years […]

Holiday Bucketlist

The next two months my husband and I are going on two holidays. So I thought it would be nice to make a Holiday Bucketlist. In October we’re going to Cornwall and in November in Bath and Bristol. It will be the first time we are going to these locations, so I’ve made a long […]

Fairtrade Coffee

Fairtrade Coffee

I’ve decided that I’m going to buy only fairtrade coffee a few months ago. It’s more expensive, but it’s not a necessity (despite being addicted to coffee and drinking coffee a few times a day). There is no justification, for me, not to buy fairtrade. Luckily there are plenty of options on the market, both […]
